This book offers the reader the keys for a successful understanding, integration and usage of satellite systems in addition to next generation terrestrial networks. The DVB-S2/RCS system is used to illustrate the integration challenges. The presentation uses a system approach, i.e. it tackles the terrestrial and satellite telecommunication systems’ complexity with a high level approach, focusing on the systems’ components and on their interactions. Several scenarios present the different paths that can be followed for the integration of satellite systems in terrestrial networks. Quality of Service management techniques in terrestrial and satellite systems and the solutions to help them to interoperate are provided. Inter-system mobility solutions and performance problems are then addressed. The solutions proposed in this book have been developed within the framework of European and French funded research projects and tested with simulated or real testbeds.

Broadband Satellite Communication Systems and the Challenges of Mobility is an essential reference for both academic and professional researchers in the field of telecommunications, computer networking and wireless networks. Recently the request of multimedia services has been rapidly increasing and satellite networks appear to be attractive for a fast service deployment and for extending the typical service area of terrestrial systems. In comparison with traditional wide area networks, a characteristic of satellite communication systems is their ability in broadcasting and multicasting multimedia information flows anywhere over the satellite coverage. The papers presented in this volume highlight key areas such as Satellite Network Architectures, Services and Applications; Mobile Satellite Systems and Services; and Hybrid Satellite and Terrestrial Networks. Mobility will inevitably be one of the main characteristics of future networks, terminals and applications and, thus, extending and integrating fixed network protocols and services to mobile systems represents one of the main issues of present networking. The secondary focus of this volume is on challenges of mobility, that is, on technologies, protocols and services for the support of seamless and nomadic user access to new classes of applications in person-to-person, device-to-device and device-to-person environments. The book comprises recent results of research and development in the following areas; Seamless mobility; Mobile ad hoc and sensor networks; Analysis, simulation and measurements of mobile and wireless systems; Integration and inter-working of wired and wireless networks; QoS in mobile and wireless networks; Future trends and issues concerning mobility. This state -of-the-art volume contains a collection of papers from two of the workshops of the 18th IFIP World Computer Congress, held August 22-27, 2004, in Toulouse, France: the Workshop on Broadband Satellite Communication Systems, and the Workshop on the Challenges of Mobility.

Next Generation Mobile Broadcasting provides an overview of the past, present, and future of mobile multimedia broadcasting. The first part of the book—Mobile Broadcasting Worldwide—summarizes next-generation mobile broadcasting technologies currently available. This part covers the evolutions of the Japanese mobile broadcasting standard ISDB-T One-Seg, ISDB-Tmm and ISDB-TSB; the evolution of the South Korean T-DMB mobile broadcasting technology AT-DMB; the American mobile broadcasting standard ATSC-M/H; the Chinese broadcasting technologies DTMB and CMMB; second-generation digital terrestrial TV European standard DVB-T2 and its mobile profile T2-Lite; and the multicast/broadcast extension of 4G LTE cellular standard E-MBMS. This part includes a chapter about a common broadcast specification of state-of-the-art 3GPP and DVB standards to provide a broadcast overlay optimized for mobile and operated in conjunction with a broadband unicast access. It also contains an overview chapter on a new High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard that is expected to provide significantly improved coding efficiency compared to current MPEG-4 AVC video coding. The second part of the book—Next-Generation Handheld DVB Technology: DVB-NGH —describes the latest mobile broadcast technology known as Digital Video Broadcasting-Next-Generation Handheld (DVB-NGH), which is expected to significantly outperform all existing technologies in both capacity and coverage. DVB-NGH introduces new technological solutions that along with the high performance of DVB-T2 make DVB-NGH a powerful next-generation mobile multimedia broadcasting technology. In fact, DVB-NGH can be regarded as the first 3G broadcasting system because it allows for the possibility of using multiple input multiple output MIMO antenna schemes to overcome the Shannon limit of single antenna wireless communications. DVB-NGH also allows the deployment of an optional satellite component forming a hybrid terrestrial-satellite network topology to improve coverage in rural areas where the installation of terrestrial networks is economically unfeasible. Although the commercial deployment of DVB-NGH is nowadays unclear after its standardization, it will be a reference point for future generations of digital terrestrial television technologies. Edited by a member of the DVB-NGH standardization group, the book includes contributions from a number of standardization groups worldwide—including Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) in Europe; Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) in the US, Korea, Japan, and China; Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP); and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).
